i've noticed an issue with kate lately: i can't edit root-files anymore. Usually Kate would prompt the password on an attempted save (afaik thats done using polkit?), now i just get the message that i don't have the permissions.
The only thing i can remember changing between the last time i remember it working and the first time i remember it not working is removing systemd from
/etc/nsswitch.conf due to an ongoing issue - but that shouldn't interfere with polkit, should it?
kauth is installed and from what i found that should be enough?
/usr/share/polkit-1 and noticed that the
./rules.d/ folder hat 750 permissions - changing it to 755 didn't help though.
I'm kind of lost on how to approach this - all search results are old ones from before kate supported polkit
I hope someone has a suggestion, thanks in advance
